CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – March 7, 2018
I was working at an off site location and had no management from Goodwill on site. As well as very little communication from a manager of any kind. I had three different managers in a six month period. Management dose not pass on information about what was going on before they took over.
They did pay for my CNA training
Not helpful if injured on the gob or an illness because of the job.
CNA Facilitator (Current Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – March 9, 2018
This was an okay place to work for a few years to build experience. I would not recommend this job to a friend or even an acquaintance. Management has no idea what they are doing and advancement is based on favoritism, not performance. The pay is awful and the company does not implement it's mission statements. It is all about budgets, numbers, and money. Employees are often told what they do wrong but they are rarely praised for doing good things.

Front Desk Associate (Current Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – October 11, 2017
I especially enjoyed Friday Job Club; sharing employment opportunities, Job Fairs, etc. I appreciated the network of several employees, and their expertise, in finding employment opportunities, and up to date companies that are hiring.

Janitor (Current Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – September 4, 2017
Management does not know how to communicate with employees or other managers within the company. Management tells you that you will be receiving a pay increase of an extra .75 cents from you average pay of 9.30 did I mention that you are lucky if you actually see your pay change. Management manipulates your hours and pay. Summer hours ha, all you are doing is 12 hours shifts Sunday-Thursday and 10 hours on a Friday. Not enough staff for schools that need 2 full time and 1 part time. Did I mention that they failed to let their employees know that they had lost their contracts to d-20 schools? So that you would have time to get employed elsewhere. You end up hearing about it from d-20 officials if you are close to the principle or vice principle of the schools. Oh and for people that think you have until the 30th of September 2017 to find work think again because D-20 has a hiring even on the 8th and work starts on the 13th 2017!
Dock Lead (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – August 11, 2017
Can be hectic but a great place to get your foot in the door. I learned patience in a busy working environment. I really enjoyed working with all different kinds of people from all walks of life, and the opportunity to move forward in the company.
Admin (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – July 28, 2017
Being on salary means working M-F 8-5 and being continually called on weekends. Much lower pay than you'd expect, even for a non-profit. Medical benefits were very expensive and low quality. Senior management was splintered into their own areas and there didn't seem to be any real plan. It wasn't unusual to hear the VPs screaming at each other through closed doors. The employee turn over rate was exceptionally high, even in administrative areas where you'd expect it be lower. Goodwill seemed to have a love for firing (or forcing out) people that didn't want to be 24/7 or crossed their manager once.
Front Desk Associate (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – January 12, 2017
It was a job to cover my experience where I could get paid while I was looking for a permanent job. It was a front desk job , setting up and opening a historical museum each day, balance the cash register every morning and evening, greeting each guest and educate each guest on the displays of the museum, research and answer any questions. Clean and organize the displays.
Case Manager for TANF (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – October 28, 2016
Horrible work environment with the worst management I have ever encountered. Heavy encounters with burnout and a system that promotes burnout. Management does not support staff and created a hostile work environment.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Grand Junction, CO – September 29, 2016
I worked with them for 7 months. I wasnt impressed with them. I wont work for them again. Thier policy on sick is ridiculous, even if you are in a hospital, and come in with proof, you still get written up.
CUSTOMER SERVICE (Former Employee) – Donation Supervisor, Pueblo, Co – September 15, 2016
I loved working there, very friendly people and environment. I felt as thought this place was my second home. I worked in many different departments, and learned a lot of things, but my favorite was donations. The manager was very supportive, family oriented, and had a warm heart. The hardest part of the job was, troublemakers, gossipers and drama queens. I enjoyed everything about working there, even though I didn't get rich, I loved it so much that I decided to make it my career.
